Hi - can anyone advise on the safety aspect in Naples? I'm hearing quite a lot of warnings and am getting a bit concerned for my upcoming trip. I tend to think security perception is relative (I'm from New York City which many deem terrifying unsafe, yet I've never experienced a bad incident and feel comfortable walking alone at night). While I know it's fairly unwise to wear thick gold chains when going down a dark desolate alley or count $100 bills in the subway, what I'm hearing about Naples…

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could recommend an apart-hotel in Venice (a twin room with small kitchenette). I have looked at airbnb rentals, but we are a small group and would like to be in the same building, but still housed in an apartment like accommodation. Thanks for the help.

Do you know of any suggestions?
Or other possibilities to do this leg with public transport?

So I will be travelling around Campania for 5 days in September with my friend who is from Campania. I just want to be prepared before I go. This is how the trip is planned:

Day 1 - in the Italian countryside near to Benevento (at my friend's house)
Day 2 - a quiet day in Benevento
Day 3 - Sorrento, what would you recommend to do here? Would it be good to take a boat to Capri for a few hours?
Day 4 & 5 Naples - I hope to see the main sights here, like the palace, the two castles and some of the…

Hello,

My girlfriend and I will be driving up to the Lakes Region from Nice (down there for a wedding) and think spending two nights in the Piedmont region would be a great way to break up the drive and see more of Italy. We are trying to figure out what town to base ourselves in for the two nights. Our initial search has shown large private homes for rent (with pools) out in smaller towns for very reasonable rates, or nice hotels in some of the smaller cities (Alba, Asti) for the same price…

Hi folks, I will be sailing the Aeolian Islands the first week of August (yes, I know it is the craziest season to be traveling in!) and am trying to decide where I should spend the weekend after finishing the sail. I will in all likelihood be flying out of Catania late afternoon Sunday so I am just looking for a beautiful place to chill for a few days though a place that is seaside, beautiful and historic would be great. I have heard Cefalu, Taormina and Agrigento are all great options but if…

Hi everyone,

Looking for some advice if I may. Have had a search but can't really find anything on here and nothing definitive using google.

I'm looking at borrowing my mates camera while travelling in Italy. Once I'm done with it I need to send it to him in South Africa (where he is travelling). The question I have is will I have to pay tax going through customs? Both of us live in New Zealand.

Thanks
Paul

I have a short trip coming up to Naples at the end of June. I arrive late Saturday night and depart on Wednesday evening which gives me three full days (Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday) and most of a fourth day in the region (flying in and out of Naples).

I've got a very reasonably-priced place booked in Naples (Centro Storico) for all 4 nights I'll be there. I would really like to visit an island (either Ischia or Procida, Capri seems a bit fancy/expensive for my tastes) and I'm wondering if I…
